Lookin' good. My previous concerns re now laid to rest.........previous bad camera angle made his legs look skinny but in the original, just the same unless you count the battle armor attachment.

He's the most epic-looking nurse ever created.

Looks good and I think there's some modular play with the weapons.

Just got Whirl today, and now I want Roadbuster because 1) he looks much more awesome than we were led to believe, and 2) I want to recreate this for some reason:

Wait a minute, wasn't there supposed to be a sticker saying "do not paint" on his hood? He still looks better than what we've seen before!

Wondering if he has stickers that need to be applied like Whirl did. Otherwise he needs some repolabels bad to break up all blandness on him. Otherwise nice figure.

He does. It was stated at Toy Fair earlier this year, when he was revealed, that he would have a sticker sheet. ;)

The only major flaw I see is lack of wrists. Oh well; that's a better problem to have than gorilla arms. :P

I'm excited!!

Yeah, its sad they couldn't incorporate a wrist swivel there. specially since it looks like the arms at that point don't do anything else except peg into the bumper for transformation into car mode.

Still its looking very very nice.

I want this...guess it's online only for me though, as the UK never even got Whirl...or much of the generations come to think of it.

This looks really awesome but I'm trying to figure out what to do with my Universe RB with Nato-Bot upgrade.

Well anyway will there be a Takara release or a repaint of this down the line...anyone? :-? :VEHI:

Sweet looking! The only thing missing is a big :BOT: in the middle of his hood/chest. Comic accuracy or not, this is what I will do to mine.

Yep... a must buy for me! I like all of the ports on him.... may have to dig out some of the PCC minicons and add even MORE guns/weapons to him.... :APPLAUSE:

Roadbuster, like Whirl, will come with a sticker sheet, so you'll get your big ol' Autobot faction symbols. ;)

A molded one would have been killer on this guy.

Damn it looks so awesome, the arms are a little weird, but I really, really like this.
Dare I say this beats the FansProject one?

Talking of Whirl's sticker sheet. Is there anyway I can buy a separate one? My Whirl was lacking both sticker and instruction sheets.

I'm not quite sure about the original sticker sheet, but Reprolabels has a set that definitely enchances Whirl, as well as giving him even more detail. Here's the listing, if you're interested.

They'll be perfect. Thanks for the heads up. ☺

Great job capturing his essence. I agree his lower legs don't look as bad now. Can't wait for it to come out. So when will that be?

Who knows? If TakaraTomy has any plans it's most likely going to be for Cloud as Generations has ended there it seems. You know any popular Decepticon Jeeps aside from Swindle?

"popular" is probably pushing it, but what about Crankcase? Or maybe Battletrap (he could say Cloud Rodimus stole his helicopter mode)

Or as part of the Legends line, which looks to be the new Generations.

Hopefully Legends will have more than just Beast Wars molds, as it currently seems to be highly BW-centric with its manga starring the Beast Wars cast in office comedy stories.

not to mention the logo is styled after the Japanese Beast Wars one.

A small update on the previous in-hand images of Generations Roadbuster, we have additional images of the Autobot Wrecker, courtesy of Pax Cybertron via Facebook! Through these additional images, we get a nice look at how each of his weapons interact with him in both modes. According to Pax Cybertron, several in-hand images of Roadbuster's wave-mate, Sky-Byte, will be posted tomorrow as well. Check out the images below!

Hollow guns? Oh man. Hasbro is really cutting back. Does he come with a missile? Looks like the missile launcher can fit one.

Gosh the more I see Roadbuster, I really, really want him. (Maybe I need him.) :BANG_HEAD: Though I also want to see Sky-Byte and Brainstorm.

The color saturation is strong with this one.
Still a great looking mold though.

That head sculpt reminds me a lot of a Zaku. From Gundam design. Not an expert just an observation. The Darth Vader reference is somewhat accurate too. And Samus. I think I like my 3rd party version better. Cost doesn't compare though so this is a good option, and looks good enough.

Ah, cool, thanks for getting these up here. Yeah, a lot of them are from my instragram feed, hence the filters. I'm working on the video review right now, so that should be up soon.

He does come with a missile. I just hadn't put it back in when shooting these.

He's a great toy. I'm really enamored with him. Hasbro's doing a great job of stepping up the game.

The hollow weapons are due to the "customizing" aspect of how they interlock.

Glad I was right about the modular nature of the weapons. Wouldn't mind seeing this guy as a Constructbot.

If I remember correctly, I believe he is supposed to come with a decal sheet similar to how Whirl did so I would imagine that is why he hoesn't have an Autobot logo straight out of the box.

Roadbuster has always been a favorite. I can't wait for him. I love this sculpt, Hasbro really hit it out of the park with him and whirl. I'd love to see a Broadside triple changer but that fansproject one would work nicely too. I love the pics of Gel Shark too, gonna pick him up. More Car Robots toys!!! I'm kind of torn though. I'm thinking of selling my movie toys but there are some that are just really cool. Maybe I'll just keep the ones that are in the movie... but then Hasbro screwed us over with DoTM with Que, Soundwave, and Leadfoot. SIGH.

Once again, thanks to Pax Cybertron, we have a video review of the soon-to-be-released Generations Roadbuster! Pax Cybertron goes in-depth with Roadbuster, showing off the articulation, weaponry, sticker sheet, size comparison, and how to transform him. The video review has been mirrored below for your convenience.
